TWO NAPS!!

  
I know, I know… can I talk about anything else?

Apparently, no. I’m all naps all the time.

This weekend was another couple days of weird schedules. Charlotte has been waking up at around 6/630 every day for the past weekish. Every morning, her little baby diaper is totally soaked through, as are her clothes. After 4 mornings like this, we started to think, “hey… I think she’s ready for the next size!”

Duh, right?

Anyway, I think that might be why she’s been waking up so early, which could also be throwing off her whole schedule. Bad sleep perpetuates bad sleep.

I’m not 100% convinced, but it’s something to try.

I bought her new (bigger) night diapes that we’ll try tonight!

So anyway, on Saturday, Charlotte took a 3-hour nap, from 11-2. This was her only nap of the day and it worked great. She was a little doll the whole day. Only trouble? 11-2 is not a sustainable nap time and I don’t think she’s ready to push it back until 1.

On Sunday, we went back to trying for two naps. Charlotte napped from about 940-1140 I believe… or something like that. Then, we put her down for her second nap at around 330/4. She fell asleep at around 5p and we ended up having to wake her up for dinner at 6:45. Ugh. Needless to say, she didn’t fall asleep until about 10:30 pm last night. Unsuccessful.

BUT!!! And here’s where things start looking up… today, Charlotte napped from around 10-1130 AND AGAIN THIS AFTERNOON! It’s currently 4:30 and she’s been asleep since at least 3 pm! I’m so excited. Hopefully it’s not just a fluke. But even so, I’m feeling relieved. This tiny person was definitely in need of a little rest.

  1. I feel you on the pressure to get those naps in!! We are completely off if we don’t have 3 naps every day. Morning 9:30 (usually 40 min-1 hr), noon – anytime after 2nd feeding (1-1 1/2 hrs) and our last one at 3:30/4ish (1 hr). That 4pm one is crucial for us to make it the rest of the night. If not, it’s impossible to get her to sleep around 8.

    Fingers crossed it’s not a fluke and things get into their normal rhythm. Happy babies everywhere 🙂

    • It’s 854 and the child is still awake… Not ideal, but I’m hoping it’s just cause daddy put her to bed tonight and she’s not as used to that (I’m a total nighttime hog – it’s my fave). But I hear ya. The naps make her a totally different (and more agreeable) mini person!

  2. This pattern will change soon and just when you think that it has got fixed, there will be several more adjustments. So I figured with mine it was 2 naps a day at an interval of 4 hours each and just when I thought we were sorted I realised that the LO fights good night sleep because he gets too tired of staying up the entire afternoon and evening 😦
